Donald Trump has denied that his team ever approached South Dakota’s governor about adding his face to the iconic monument depicting four presidents at Mount Rushmore. However, he added that it sounded like a good idea.
The New York Times reported a Republican party official source on Saturday stating that a White House aide reached out to Kristi Noem’s office with the question: “What’s the process to add additional presidents to Mount Rushmore?”
According to reports, the governor had greeted Trump on his recent visit to South Dakota with a 1.2 metre replica of the monument that already included his face as a fifth element.
In a 2018 interview, Noem stated that the two had struck up a conversation about the sculpture in the Oval Office the first time they had met. She claims that she said to him: “Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota some time. We have Mount Rushmore,” and that he replied: “Do you know it’s my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?”
“I started laughing,” she said in the interview. “He wasn’t laughing, so he was totally serious.”
As you can see Trump totally denied that this happened, which in the Bizarro Trump World that we all now inhabit means that it totally happened.
Could you even imagine having Trump’s giant head on Mt. Rushmore?
I mean without puking?
If you think the people were aggressive in tearing down those statues of Confederate leaders just wait until you see what they would do to Trump’s head on Mt. Rushmore.
